Task Force Seeks Insurance Coverage of Routine HIV Testing
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has released draft recommendations supporting routine HIV testing for all Americans ages 15 to 65 and all pregnant women, Reuters reports. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention made similar recommendations in 2006.

The draft recommendations will be available for public comment for 30 days before final recommendations are released in 2013.
